Po­lice are look­ing for a man who held up an Up­per James Street pet store Satur­day around 6:30 p.m.

Po­lice re­sponded to a re­port of the rob­bery in progress around 6:30 p.m. at the 1550 Up­per James St. store but the thief had al­ready fled the area.

The ca­nine unit tried search­ing for him but couldn’t find him.

Po­lice said a lone man en­tered the Pet Value store and de­manded cash while ges­tur­ing that he had some kind of weapon in his pocket. He made off with a small amount of cash. The store em­ployee was not in­jured dur­ing the rob­bery, po­lice noted.

The sus­pect is de­scribed as white, six feet tall and in his 40s. He was wear­ing dark cloth­ing, in­clud­ing a hooded shirt.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call Staff Sgt. Emidio Evan­ge­lista at 905-546-2991, or to re­main anony­mous, con­tact Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-222-8477.
